My fiancé and I both agree that the loose leaves smell like the Dinosaur Fruit Snacks we used to eat as kids. (For those of you out there who remember those, I dare you to give this tea a try. xD)
Anyway, put simply, this tea tastes like drinking gummy bears. It steeps a rich, dark purple color that is very pleasing. I will be going back to this one again and again. I must say, one of my (rather odd) criteria for fruit teas is that I prefer it to be multi-fruit. If a tea has only one fruit flavor… to me, that’s a little blah, like the tea only has one note to sing. I like teas that sing multi-note chords. I’m certainly not going to say that one-note teas are bad, and I’m definitely not trying to say that people who like fruit teas that have only one fruit flavor have poor taste—if you, dear reader, are one of those people, please understand that I mean you no offense when I make that statement. It’s just my personal preference. Different strokes for different folks, as they say. :)
Anyway, this tea fits that criteria beautifully. It’s pure, unadulterated fruit tea at its best. __ Glad I bought four ounces of it, ’cause I will be craving it in the future.
